From publisher's description: "Lannstrom probes Artistotle's view that desire is crucial to decision making and to the formation of moral habits, pinpointing the 'love of the fine' as the starting point of any argument for ethics. Those who love the fine can be persuaded that ethics is a crucial part of our happiness. However, as Lannstrom explains, the immoral person does not share this love and therefore Aristotle denied that this argument would convince the immoral person to change. Lannstrom maintains, thus, that Aristotle's Ethics was written for those who already love the fine, aiming to help them improve their self-understanding and encouraging them to become better human beings. As a consequence, Aristotelian ethics remain viable today."
